Where can I dispose of electronic items?

Ken Little

In New Hanover County, periodic disposal dates are set at the county landfill on Highway 421 North.

Lynn Bestul, county solid waste planner,  says that when an electronic waste event is scheduled, it will be posted on the New Hanover County Web site: www.nhcgov.com

Bestul forwarded the Best Buy link that explains the retailer’s electronic recycling program. He said there is a $10 fee for some items, but participants receive a $10 gift card. Here is the link:


In Brunswick County, “We recycle at the main landfill all electronics at no cost,” says Kim Thompson, county solid waste coordinator.

Electronic items like computers and televisions are collected and stacked on pallets and a private company picks them up by the truckload. The items are then dismantled and recycled, Thompson says.

The county landfill is located at 172 Landfill Road NE, off Galloway Road in Bolivia. For more information about recycling in Brunswick County, go to www.brunsco.net

In Pender County, officials say electronic items can be taken to the county landfill at 312 Transfer Station Road in Hampstead for recycling.
